Oh what fun!! A brand new play-along!!
So, what's that on my shelf? It's the baker's rack in my kitchen and I particularly like these two shelves (the others are more utilitarian and house such things as a garlic pot, a banana holder, a wooden bowl for fruit, and the like.) But these are my fun ones and all have special meanings.
The cookie jar was a special aunt's and needs to be filled with cookies as we speak.
The cutting board was made by my son in high school and I love it -- can't bear to use it so it sits in its special place.
The copper watering can is just because I like it.
The wooden things were brought back from Holland by my brother -- they are for mixing and whipping -- I've used them but mostly just for fun.
The old irons are from both sets of grandparents -- the big one opens to put coal in it and has a little knob in front in the shape of a lion!
And the best: my little kitchen stove from childhood -- I fixed many a "meal" on it!!
The tail on the right belongs to Sam the cat -- he decided he was hungry and came over to dine. I like his tail. And him, too, of course.
Go here for more shelves (and thanks Pip for the fun new meme!)
